Author's Note: It's HERE! Finally! For NaNoWriMo, I'm finally completing and posting the first of 2 sequels for 18 Seconds to Make Old Things New Again. I first posted that fic in 2007, and wrapped it up with a teaser for this fic. I apologize to everyone I've made wait 6 years for this sequel - you've been super patient, and I thank you for sticking with me.

(Follow the fake cut to the beginning of my newest epic.)

I am alive. No, really.

Rose Dark Hair
For the curious, in a personal sense I'm mainly available on Facebook now.

For FANDOM!!! *Ahem* I'm currently working on archiving my fics on Fanfiction.net so they're readily available a bit more consistently (trying to work within LJ's confines has been a struggle the whole way through, and I'm not sure I trust the system anymore). Why am I archiving? Well, because I finally figured out where the hell my notes and partially completed work was for the fics I had in progress, and I'm making some edits to the unfinished stuff and jumping back in. That means that YES, the Survival series will finally get going again, with Maybe Too Soon starting sometime next week.

I'll still be posting links on the LJ communities to new chapters and stories, but they are all going to link back to FF.net, rather than reposting things in 12 different spots. Also, if anyone wants to point me at any good Facebook groups for fanfic, it'd be most appreciated.

Black March - Thursday March 1st 2012 to Saturday March 31st 2012 With the continuing campaigns for internet-censoring litigation such as SOPA and PIPA, and the closure of sites like Megaupload under allegations of 'piracy' and 'conspiracy' the time has come to take a stand against music, film, and media companies' lobbyists. The only way is to hit them where it hurts. Their profit margins. March 2012 is the end of the First Quarter in economic reports world wide. Do not buy a single record. Do not download a single song, legally or illegally. Do not go to see a single film in cinemas, or download a copy. Do not buy a DVD in the stores. Do not buy a videogame. Do not buy a single book or magazine. Wait the four weeks to buy them in April: see a film later, etc... Holding out for just four weeks, maximum, will leave a gaping hole in media companies profits for the first quarter, an economic hit which will in turn be observed by governments world wide as stocks and shares will blip from a large enough loss of incomes. This action will give a statement of intent: "We will not tolerate the Media Industries' lobbying for legislation that will censor the internet."

Edited to add my own thoughts (not part of the original reddit call for action) And if you do not feel like taking a total break and perhaps want just a trial separation or couple's counseling, then perhaps consider Black March Lite 2.0 = spend, but spend money on those content creators and independent retailers who came out against SOPA/PIPA.  And tell them why you're buying their products in March.  There are many of them.

And for those who favor the more targeted boycott, you can find info  here.  But no matter which,  you can participate and you can tailor your level of participation.  We have the tools, the will and the strength to take a stand.

Joining in on the Tin Man Seasonal Challenge, with both prompt tables, for 100 prompts total. But Erin, you never finished the 100 themes challenge!

The Arrow and the Cross

Title: The Arrow and the Cross
Fandom: Tin Man
Characters/Pairing: DG, Ahamo, Cain
Rating: G+
Summary: DG is constantly told that she's not a very good princess. Ahamo reminds her that she doesn't have to be. Written for the fic prompt 'Cumbersome' for the Tin Man Seasonal Challenge 4.
Warning: One semi-naughty word, and fluffiness.
Disclaimer: I own nothing and I make no money from writing these, which is why I don't do it as often as I used to.

'Stupid, stupid, STUPID!'Collapse )

Tin Man Fic post

Love the World
It just occurred to me that I never posted the last two ficlets I did for tm_challenge for rounds 18 & 20, nor the icons I did for round 19. As per usual, I only use a beta when forced to do so. So, here ya go.

Title: Coming To
Fandom: Tin Man
Characters/Pairing: Cain/Adora, DG, Glitch, Raw
Rating: G
Summary: It is spring, and Cain is dreaming. Written for challenge 18 at tm_challenge, "Spring".
Warning: Cavity-inducing sweetness.
Disclaimer: Since when do I own any of these characters?

There isn't anything in the little bit of scenery he can make out that actually indicates the season, but the sourceless hazy pink and yellow light lacks the chill of winter or the heat of summer.Collapse )


~o.0.o~



Title: Gune
Fandom: Tin Man
Characters/Pairing: Glitch, Cain
Rating: G
Summary: Glitch has been "inventing", and Cain is wary of the results. Written for Challenge 20 at tm_challenge, quote prompts.
Warning: Glitch be crazy, yo.
Disclaimer: I used an extra quote in my fic, in addition to one of the prompts. Hint to the source of the extra quote is in the title. :)

That doesn’t even look like it should be physically possible.Collapse )

And here's 3 icons for y'all to use. Credit if used, please host on your own server, yadda yadda and so on.

Yup, that's logic.

I had this added to my memories here on LJ ages ago, but since then the journal it was on has been deleted. I thought I would post it here so I wouldn't lose it again.

Top Ten Reasons to Make Gay Marriage Illegal

01) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

02) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

03) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

04) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all like many of the principles on which this great country was founded; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

05) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of marriages like Britney Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

06) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

07) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

08) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.

09) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

Blasphemy

Love the World
Title: Blasphemy
Fandom: Tin Man
Characters/Pairing: DG, with a dash of Cain, Glitch, and the rest of the Royal Family for flavor. No pairings.
Rating: PG-13
Summary: DG comes to some startling conclusions about a certain 'good' witch, and ruins tea in the process. Crack!fic based on this article.
Warning: Some slightly salty language and a mangling of a childhood hero. You know, the usual.
Disclaimer: I don't own Tin Man, although I do wish I owned Glitch so I could use him as my own walking, talking handbag. This fic borrows a few of the better lines from the article above as well, and I don't own those either.
Word Count: 1427

I mean, did anyone actually think about what she did before deciding she was some sort of hero and turning her into a holy figure?Collapse )
